The Horizontal Latch is a versatile door hardware component designed to secure doors and provide convenient access. It is typically used in applications where a traditional vertical latch or deadbolt may not be suitable or desired. The horizontal latch operates horizontally, allowing for easy operation and increased security.
The latch mechanism consists of a horizontal bolt or latch that extends into a strike plate or receiver installed on the door frame. When the door is closed, the latch engages with the strike plate, effectively securing the door in place. The horizontal orientation of the latch provides a different locking mechanism than traditional vertical latches, offering unique advantages in certain situations.
One of the key benefits of the Latch is its ease of use. Unlike vertical latches that require a turning motion to engage or disengage, the horizontal latch can be operated by simply sliding or pushing the bolt into the strike plate. This makes it convenient for individuals with limited mobility or strength, as well as for quick and effortless access in high-traffic areas.
The Latch is commonly used in various applications, including interior doors, cabinets, closets, and furniture. It can be installed on different door materials, such as wood, metal, or composite materials. The latch is available in various sizes and finishes to match the aesthetics of the door and surrounding décor.
